New Service Lets Consumers Securely Synchronize and Back Up Information to the Cloud for Instant, Anywhere Access

PRINCETON, N.J., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Snap MyLife, Inc. (www.snapmylifeinc.com), developer of cloud-service applications for consumers and families, today announced the launch of Snap Sync (www.mysnapsync.com), its new content synchronization cloud service. With Snap Sync, users can sync their photos, videos, music and documents in the cloud for instant access across their Android smartphones and tablets, Windows PC and Mac OS X computers, and other internet-enabled devices via Snap Sync's browser interface.

Consumers can setup their devices to sync within minutes, automatically syncing and backing up content. Snap a photo with a phone and it instantly syncs to the cloud. Download a song at home and listen to it on the go. Access and download documents on any device with a browser.

"Snap Sync is a simple, consumer-friendly cloud service for anywhere access to your information," said Jiren Parikh, president and CEO at Snap MyLife, Inc.  "With secure cloud storage and automatic syncing of all your data, Snap Sync makes it easy to manage your digital life. And, because everything is automatic, it makes for an incredibly simple and reliable backup tool. Just set it and forget it."

Snap Sync device and application support:

  • Snap Sync mobile app for Android 2.2 and above lets users access all their files from all their devices using their Android smartphone or tablet and automatically sync music, photos and videos from the device to the cloud.
  • Snap Sync desktop app for Windows XP SP3 and above and Mac OS X v10.6 and above lets users drag and drop folders from any PC or Mac to sync them to the cloud.

Future releases include downloadable Snap Sync apps for Microsoft Windows 8 and Apple iOS devices, as well as enhanced browser support, including off-line content access.

Simplicity is key. Snap Sync automatically organizes and groups content from all of your sync-enabled devices into photo, video, music or document "content views" for easy access regardless of where it originated. To find files fast, users can search by keyword or sort by file name, date or size, as well as easily share files via email and file links. Snap Sync can be set to sync only over Wi-Fi so as not to consume cellular data bandwidth.

A Snap Sync subscription starts at $89.89 annually with 10 GB of data storage included for unlimited devices. Subscribers are instantly enrolled in the Snap One premium service, which provides access to a portfolio of applications, plus storage plans extending up to 1 terabyte. Snap One applications include Snap Sync for data synchronization and access, Snap Secure for mobile, personal and family security and Snap MyLife for managing and sharing photos.
